welcome to the latest issue of
THIS MONTH’S GUEST EDITOR IS MARK AUDINO, THE PARTNER AT OUR NEW CROSS OFFICE As the Branch Partner at our New Cross office, I’m delighted to guest edit this issue. Our office is approaching the end of its second year and has already built an excellent reputation. The team have a brilliant knowledge of the local area, which we’d like to share with you on page 4. The property market in New Cross and across the Group’s network has been particularly interesting in the last 12 months. It is constantly changing from area to area and even road to road. It has never been more critical to use a local estate agent with its finger on the pulse and a physical presence. It’s not acceptable to be dealt with by a rep that you only get to see once and who is often uncontactable. When the market is changeable, every sale needs a degree of tenacity to see it through to a happy conclusion. You’ll need expertise to skilfully negotiate prices, Sales Progressors to broker relationships with other agents, solicitors and mortgage lenders involved, and staff who keep in touch with you from day one until the keys are handed over. There’s a handful of different ways to sell your home but full service agencies are the most successful, and The Robinson Jackson Group continues to lead the way. Yes, we’re online but we’re also taking advantage of ‘offline sales’ and offer face-to-face services backed by skills that can’t be delivered by a website. We explain more in our first property spotlight article The Art of Selling on page 16.
There was a great quote from consumer champion Which? recently: “We advise you to put your laptop away, take a walk down the high street and register with estate agents.’ I agree with this wholeheartedly, so come in and see us. We’ll arrange a tour of the area and show you some brilliant properties along the way. You won’t get that level of service surfing online! Our second property spotlight article covers the in-branch services that go above and beyond selling. Read more on how we’re with you every step on the way of page 26. We complete the magazine with home interior inspiration (page 56), hot drinks recipes (page 46), our property notice board (page 66), and a selection of homes for sale and to rent throughout the magazine.
